I am not to sure if it comes out this week, but, Dark Knight II by Frank Miller. Dont miss this title.. It's going to be a hot one that's for sure. I never read the orginal Dark KNight, but, I've heard nothing but praise for it..

Well, I just walked over to the comic shop near my office, bought it and read DK2. This is the first comic I've bought in like 2 months.
It was worth it.

Grumble... That means I need to track through the snow to get it.. Well, their could worse fates eh? http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif
Hopefully, I'll keep up on 'The Comic of the week'..

Nothing super stellar came out this week in comics that I can see.. I'll try and keep this threat for just new series starting up, and not existing ones.. Unless, their super stellar. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif
For Anime fans Banished Knights from Image came out this week..
And Deadman #1 from DC came out.
Neither of these titles I have seen yet, but, the art in Banished KNights looks quite good..

Another Deadman #1? Didn't DC just finish up a Deadman limited series?
December 13th, 2001, 11:58 AM
Yep, they did.. This is #1 for a new monthly series. I flipped through it today and it looks a little bizarre, but, nothing to stellar. I passed it by myself.

I know you said that you wouldn't be talking about existing series, but this might not really qualify since issue 7 (or was it 6?) just came out this week: Sojourn from CrossGen. This is an amazing book with truly outstanding artwork from Greg Land (recently of Nightwing fame). If you haven't checked it out yet, you're missing out http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I cant disagree with you, Ware.. I did pick up the Prequel of Sojourn, and did enjoy it. But, two reason prevented me from reading it..
1) I read alot of Fantasy novels, I dont want to read comics that are similiar to novels, plus, I read Scion (fantasy in nature)
2) Biggest thing, to many great titles out there, I cant collect them all. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I'm torn this week in deciding which comic that I bought I liked best. I guess I'll have to say it was a tie between Captain Marvel #26 and Queen and Country #5.
Peter David and Chriscross show some brilliant chemistry in their title's installment in Marvel's silent issue month. There were some pretty hilarious scenes. This is one of the best comics going at the moment.
On a more serious side, we have Queen and Country, Greg Rucka's spy books. Written before the events of September 11th, it involves and SIS (or, if you prefer MI6) agent caught in Afghanistan by the Taliban. Rucka writes a gripping spy story! If you're not reading this series, you're missing out!
Both of these give you plenty of bang for your buck, so go out and buy them! http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

Yet a other week has passed, and I still have yet to find any comics of worth to recommend to those who dont frequent the shops.. Over all, this week had nothing much grande to offer.
Flash came out, always a good read..
JLA has a new creative team, should be good, plus, has a sneak preview of a new DC title coming out called Power Company.
